Three Fun Kids Winter Activities

January 30, 2021

The winter months can be tough at the best of times to keep your children engaged, happy and learning. The days are shorter and colder, and sometimes the weather is so bad you can’t take them out for a stroll.

Here are some of our favourite winter activities to keep the kids happy.

Mosaics

Mosaics and sticker sheets are always a lot of fun at pretty much any age, as there is something enjoyably tactile about creating them.

Simply get a colouring page or draw a picture, then get some glue sticks, child-friendly stickers, and a lot of scraps of materials, craft paper, glittery sheets and old magazines. Everyone then cuts up the sheets and uses the little pieces as tiles to fill the picture.

For little toddlers who would ordinarily be going to local day nurseries, simply cut up the little scraps ahead of time and put the glue on for them.

Home Cinema

Whilst everyone is taking full advantage of streaming services and stacks of DVDs, making a little home cinema can really make a fun afternoon of it.

Get cushions or little seats on the floor, print little fake tickets and money and set up a little space in your living room with snacks and watch films together.

Build An Indoor Fort

A joy pretty much at any time of the year, all you need are some chairs or a table, some sheets and some blankets and you can create a little den of imagination.

Wow!!!! Were to begin.. this is by far the best nursery I could have sent my children too. The staff are extremely... friendly helpful and ensure the children are cared for and they learnt so much. My children settled really well and have both enjoyed being here. Seeing them so happy and always excited for the next day at paintpots Manchester makes me feel so at ease leaving them. They are always involving parents in everything and make you feel like one big family. A massive thank you to everyone who works there and all you have done. Looking forward to extending our family into their welcoming nursery again in the future.read more

Sent my step-son here for over 2 years before he started school. Perfect location, great staff and most importantly, he... loved it. Only issue was the refurbishment of the building taking place, but they even managed to use that as a learning experience and the kids all loved the builders and diggers opposite!!read more

I Sent my little girl here from a small baby and watched her grow in to a confident, bright young lady. I could not... praise and thank the staff here enough, they were like our second family. Very relaxed, friendly, homely environment with the children at the centre of everything they do.read more

I sent my child to this Nursery after having sent his 2 older siblings. I work in the City Centre and they love the... place, they all did. There are staff that have been there for over 10 years, location is fantastic and whilst the recent renovation works have not been ideal, it hasn't affected the care one bit. Somehow, they even find a way to make activities that involve the construction materials. Can't recommend highly enough!!read more
